Tour of the Palace of Versailles

  • English English
  • 4-5 hours

Discover the world’s most famous royal palace on this half-day trip from Paris. The Palace of Versailles is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore its main rooms and its magnificent gardens.

Itinerary

Depart from central Paris either in the morning or in the afternoon on a luxury air-conditioned coach and head to Versailles, the capital of France during several years in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century.

Upon arrival at the Palace of Versailles, the residence of the Kings of France from 1682 until 1789, you will skip the long lines and follow your guide straight into the building. The official guide will walk you through the main rooms of the royal residence, including the magnificent King’s Grand Apartment, the Queen’s Grand Apartment and the breath-taking Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919, ending World War I.

After exploring the stately palace, you’ll have time to stroll through the beautiful gardens at your own pace. You can visit the Petit and Grand Trianon (access not included in the tour). The green-space is exquisitely designed with over 200 statues, various types of trees, plants, flowers, fountains and ponds.

After a half-day marvelling at one of the most dreamlike palaces in the world, you’ll return to Paris.

Musical Fountain Show

Between the months of April and October, Versailles organizes the “Grandes Eaux, when the palace’s fountains come to life with music. The show takes place every Saturday and Sunday and on certain public holidays. If you don’t want to miss this marvellous show, check out the following tour:
